Adobe Press, in association with Peachpit Press, has launched the Creative Studio series. “Written and developed by design professionals who are Adobe software experts… Books in the Creative Studio series take readers beyond the structured lessons of the ‘Classroom in a Book’ to explore more challenging design techniques using inspirational four-color imagery.” The first title in the series is “Adobe Photoshop CS Creative Studio” (US$40) by Luanne Seymour Cohen. “From patterns and textures to type effects, photo effects, and special effects, the book’s how-to recipes teach users who are already familiar with the basic tools and commands of the program more creative ways to use Adobe Photoshop CS in their design projects.”
